What People Say about The Marketing Academy...

Our Australia Scholarship program is sponsored by:

Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...

A one-of-a-kind leadership development experience every marketer wish they had.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

It’s a program that starts with 9 months, and lasts a lifetime.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Marketing Academy has made me believe in myself and my potential as a leader in a way I’d never fully felt, and backing it up with an MBA-level network of peers and C-suite mentors who I feel comfortable calling on for virtually anything to support my continued growth.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Scholarship is a fast-track for your marketing skills, personal development, career and life. It provides an incredible learning experience for any ambitious and curious marketer or entrepreneur. The combination of bootcamps to inspire you, mentoring to guide you and coaching to help you make sense of it all ties the whole year together. And on top of all of that, you become a part of a family that is growing across the world and that is always there to help you even when your year is up!

Ben Tyson, Managing Director for Born Social, 2016 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy, without wanting to be a cliche, is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s not just about networking and mentoring, it’s about building relationships with people who will help you become a strong leader and a technically excellent marketer.

Ross Farquhar, Managing Partner at Grey London, 2010 Alumni / UK

Life changing. I was able to find my why and purpose as to why I exist in this ever so complex world!

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

From my first mentor walking into our meeting with Kelly Brook on the roof of Soho house, to a CEO helping me craft my 100 day plan to land a promotion, the Marketing Academy has given me amazing access to some incredible people and some unforgettable moments.

Phil Mitchelson, Director of Growth, Catena Media, 2011 Scholar / UK

Clarity, confidence and a fighting spirit – the headline I would put against the Marketing Academy Scholarship.

You may go in being clear on what you want to achieve but be prepared to unpack everything you thought you knew, be prepared to open your mind and be inspired by both incredible speakers & your fellow Scholars, be prepared to learn skills & techniques to grow your capability as a leader and come out the other side with real clarity on what really gets you out of bed in the morning. You’ll capture the confidence to carve out the career you want, and release the self-belief to put the right things in place to achieve it.

With the knowledge that you then have 29 other people rooting for you, not to mention the mentors, coach, speakers, alumni and Marketing Academy team you meet along the way, your fighting spirit will come to the fore to make both you and those around you true leaders of change.

Clare Beaumont-Adam, Co Owner, Independents United (IU), 2017 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy has inspired me to transform the way I think about the C-suite. It’s gone from a pipedream to an attainable goal!

Emily Byrne, General Manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beauty, L’oreal, 2014 Scholar / UK

My selection in The Marketing Academy is truly a privilege. It has afforded my the opportunity to improve my self, the way I lead my team, access to the most brilliant minds in the business, and to develop a peer group who I know will remain my friends for life. The combination of training, mentoring, coaching and inspiration will be experiences that shape my career for years to come.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

The Marketing Academy has opened so many doors for me, it is unreal! I never thought when I was applying that I would get exposure to so many game makers in the industry.

The real benefit of The Marketing Academy however, is not all the amazing talks we are given, the business leaders we get to meet and the skills we learn but the ability to create real and hopefully career lasting friendships with the other 27 amazingly super talented and hungry individuals on the academy.

The legacy of the academy will last my whole career and I can’t thank Sherilyn and the team enough for that.

If you want the best training in the industry, you simply have to do everything in your power to get on The Marketing Academy, everything else pales in comparison.

Nick Parnell, Managing Partner, The Engine Group, 2010 Alumni / UK

The Marketing Academy changed my future – it helped me realize my dream, the business leader I want to be and where my boundaries lay. It allowed me to have a massive injection of curiosity and is the reason I am now starting up my second business – anyone who doesn’t see how transformative it will be to them, their corporation and their life needs to look again.

Carrie Osman, Founder of Cruxy & Co, 2010 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy should be compulsory for everyone.

Scholar alumni, 2016 / Australia

The Marketing Academy’s mission is to turn the marketing talent of today into the leaders of tomorrow, and that’s exactly what it does. Whilst Ronseal in its mission, it leaves you with a purpose that is Adidas, a motivation that is Nike, and an ability to think like Apple. It’s the perfect programme to build your own brand that will help you progress in both your professional and personal life.

Dan Russell, Deputy Head of Account Management,AMV BBDO, 2015 Scholar / UK

For me the Academy has all been about sharing. I still can’t believe the insights and stories that have been shared by industry leaders, faculty partners and the brilliant minds of scholars. This community of sharing has opened up a completely different future for me.

Esme Roger, L’oreal, 2014 Scholar / UK

The Scholarship thus far has exceeded all my expectations and once I get my house in order, i.e. wrapping up this experience, I know it has profoundly enriched me as an individual, leader and marketer. I feel so fortunate having received this opportunity and living the experience every day, and once it is all over, I will greatly miss it, but also recognize my responsibility to make the most of it in my life and career going forward!

Emanuel Gavert, Nordic Marketing Manager, Mondelez, 2011 Scholar / UK

The Scholarship Program was an incredible experience and provided connections and friends I’ll keep for life!

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

I’ve been incredibly energized and inspired by this entire experience. And I’m really looking forward to putting into practice what was discussed at boot camp, and contributing to key projects that the broader cohort is working on as part of our paying it forward goal.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

A wonderfully rich, varied and rewarding learning platform for every aspiring marketing leader. In isolation, each of the Marketing Academy faculties is worth the rigorous application process. In sum, they constitute a programme that is unique in mission, broad in scope and blessed with industry mentors that would top any young marketers lunch wish-list. A ready-made marketing network for the next ten years of your life.

Adam Kennedy, Managing Director, Brisbane at Y&R ANZ, 2012 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy programme gave me the opportunity and chance to reflect intensely on my role as a leader at work, at home, in life. This reflection has brought a greater sense of self awareness and positivity to everything I touch. Eternally grateful.
